Forward Robbie Findley could miss Real Salt Lake's game at Columbus on Saturday with a groin injury.

The team's leading scorer last season has pulled himself out of practice the last two days with the injury, coach Jason Kreis said, making him "questionable" to play against the Crew in a rematch of the MLS Eastern Conference semifinals last season.

Findley scored five times in four games against the Crew last season -- three times in the home opener, and once in each leg of the two-game playoff series. His potential absence comes just as midfielder Javier Morales is expected to return from his own groin injury, though midfielder Ned Grabavoy and defender Chris Wingert remain out.
